Our wedding photographer mailed us a card from her travels. In it, she likened the aqueducts in France to the importance of family in our lives. Couldn’t agree more that indeed our families are the structures of our lives, especially in our forming years. More than that, they also provide the pillar of support that we need whenever we are down and need someone to talk to.
I remember playing an ice-breaker game a while back where we were asked to share our favorite things to do. As I was pondering on what mine was, I realized and shared that I enjoy many things, but the one thing that I enjoy best – and try to make most time for – is spending time with my loved ones. It’s intangible, but so so precious.
This Christmas season, I hope not to get lost in the commercial aspect of the festivities, but rather to quietly dwell in His love for us…for that is the very reason for every celebration. The fact that He loves me, He loves us…is reason enough to rejoice.
Some happy pictures over the past weeks!
